appreciate how fast that election has moved forward. the testimony has spoken of the urgency. i'm looking forward to future conversations with members of the board and this committee because this legislation is treating it's triage and treating those immediately impacted. we also need to do much more to control and regulate the kinds of speculation that is fueling those evictions. and we as a coalition of affordable housing organizations and advocates have some other suggestions as to what we can do as a city to prevent those evictions from happening in the first place. i should say mrs. lee is on her way in the bus but she hadn't made it here. thank you >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors. from san francisco apartment association. i want to thank you supervisor chiu and the rest of his sponsors. i think this election is a good piece of legislation to create an migration to a difficult problem. i want to encourage this to allow private owners to step in and help anti amending that law so we can help out where there are no fault evocation to help getting pe
's resolution 11-12 to elect to retain the housing functions of the former redevelopment agency and to accept the housing assets, accept a transfer of all of the housing assets pursuant to disillusion law that was comprised of assembly bill ab 26. in march of 2012 the oversight board took action to acknowledge all of the housing assets had transferred to the city as housing successor. however, the end of june of 2012, the state amended disillusion law through assembly bill 1384. it did a lot of things, but one of the things it did was it changed how the assets should be treated, especially in transfers to housing successors and provided that transfers of housing assets exclude any balances that are retained in the low and moderate income housing fund and ex/khraoded the transfer of any obligations that were retained by the successor agency. it also required that housing successors provide a list to the state called the housing asset transfer list or the hat. that due date was august 1, so pretty much just one month later the city was required to turn in the hat and the city did that on augus

thing politically speaking, in time for the 2014 elections you'll know whether this is, indeed, working more or less as obama promised it would and more or less as people want it to work. republicans might find themselves tremendously isolated fighting against something that's working, that's successful. remember, they still have a history of opposing security, medicare, medicaid, and a lot of programs. once they've kicked in and once they've become -- >> let's talk 2016. yo i don't want to erase the presidency. you've got a debating platform with secretary clinton or anybody else, she'll probably be the nominee, who knows. all you say is what's your plan? you're empty handed. whether you're an attractive candidate like christie or someone like that. i'm sorry, i don't have one. well, that's a problem. >> they don't have a plan. they say the same old thing, free market solutions. this is a free market solution, "a." but "b," we know what they're talking about. they're talking about the same health savings accounts that work fine if you're healthy but don't if you're not healthy. and the

starting a new chapter? >> well, you see in iran we have political elections. popular elections. they chose ahmadinejad eight years ago. they close a different path this election. this is an opportunity for us and for the west in order to dress this issue. we're not talking about sanctions. the affect of sanctions has been two-fold. when sanctions started you iran had less than 2,000 centerfuges. now iran has 18,000 centerfuges. the sanctions have utterly failed in that regard. now it seems to me that the west is trying to take advantage of this historic opportunity. we have a new government in iran with a different type of foreign policy, a different approach of foreign policy. our tenant versus nos have not . he will insist on our rights. we will not compromise on the basic rights of our people. but the window of opportunity is a limited window. >> that was with iran's foreign minister. >>> alan gross was in north korea working on an internet project fo--incuba working on a. government. he was detained. libby casey has his story. >> alan gross' wife judy describes him as a ma
